Produce 101 as F4 (Boys Over Flowers)
I don’t really know why I thought of this as I reached home from dinner but here we go with my picks and the rationale for doing so. :3 And besides, this was my very first drama that got me into the Kpop and Kdrama culture so what’s a better way than to have a little moment as I recall one of my favourite drama of all time right? :)
Just a side note that this is 100% opinion and it’s really a personal preference! I’m all ears for differing really so do share your opinions with me too and perhaps we can be friends?? ^^ Hope you guys enjoy reading this anyway~ ^^
Ong Seongwoo as Gu Junpyo
Like Junpyo in Boys Over Flowers, Ong Seongwoo pretty much fits his part with effortless savage comments when the situation calls for it. Furthermore, he is sassy when he wants to be, and think about it, he would definitely have the same level of command and presence just like Gu Junpyo. However, despite the tough aura that he presents, it’s pretty clear that he is a huge softie and is capable of pulling off hilarious antics. Honestly, I could imagine him pulling off Gu Junpyo’s character flawlessly and perhaps even utter the cheesiest of lines when it comes to confessing (or even professing) to the girl that he likes.
Bae Jinyoung as Yoon Jihoo
Indeed, he did not get his name “Deep Dark” in the beginning of the show for no reason. He was a pretty stoic person back in Produce 101 and always faced the ground, most likely out of shyness. However, this pretty much resembles Yoon Jihoo doesn’t it? He’s shy, yet talented, and prefers not to draw too much attention to himself. However, as the show progressed, we got to see more sides of Jihoo, just like Jinyoung in Produce 101. He might be young, but I could totally imagine him as a huge tsundere, always being there for the main character at the most unexpected of timings when she needs his support. (i.e. Like how Jihoo called himself Jandi’s fireman)
Park Jihoon as So Yijeong
Do I need to say more? Yijeong, to me, was probably the most adorable one that all viewers probably fell for at first sight with his natural cuteness (especially in terms of visuals) and his smolness. However, who would have expected him to be the casanova of the team right? Indeed, that’s probably what Jihoon does best; he can be cute and adorable when he wants to, but rUDE when he wants to be, worming his way into women’s hearts. It was a little hard to appreciate Yijeong as time went by because of how he treated Gaeul at some points, but it was clear that he tried his best to change for her (which was really really sweet). Besides Jihoon’s natural smolness in this team, he could probably pull off So Yijeong extremely well and would show both his bad and good side. He might be 18 but ho, no one was a better fit than this not-so-innocent Park Jihoon.
Hwang Minhyun as Song Woobin
In the show, as far as I could remember, Woobin was always known for the comic relief, badassery, wit and the fact that he was always the friend which all those members turned to for help. To me, that sums up our Emperor Hwang pretty much; he’s a dependable older brother figure for the young ones, his stone reaction which brought laughter to the community and for having seemingly innocent witty (and savage) comments. It’s funny imagining him as the son of a mafia boss, but Minhyun has pretty much shown that he can pull off almost any concept. Furthermore, Woobin is one happy go lucky character who cares for his friends deeply and Minhyun has definitely shown that he is one happy boy capable of the unexpected. Woobin was pretty much the “mum” for F4. Hence, I don’t think Minhyun got his “mum of Nu’est” title for nothing, don’t we all think so? Indeed, he would be more than capable of pulling off this character because it pretty much represents him in real life anyway.
That’s the end of this post! Thank you for reading up till this point and I hope you guys had fun! ^^ To see more of this, don’t hesitate to follow or perhaps drop in some questions too! :) Once again, I’m open to ALL opinions so fret not and drop me an ask or even a message to tell me what you guys think! <3 Wishing the top 20 all the best and goodbye for now~~ ^.^
Side note, I am so happy with the gifs I found because they are SO fitting???
